Curtis Granderson finished 0-for-5 on Saturday night, prolonging a slump that began after he homered on April 5. Granderson is batting .105 (4-for-38) with 13 strikeouts since then.
The Grandy-Man has had plenty of batting average issues over the last five years so that's to be expected. But just one RBI and three runs scored over his last 11 games to go along with those batting average woes is brutal. Owners in leagues with daily roster leagues can freely bench him, but if your league does weekly moves, then you're running a risk of missing the breakout. He's facing nothing but right-handed starters this week which makes it tempting to leave him in, but he is facing some tough ones from the Cardinals to open the week. If it were my team this week, I'd run the risk of missing the breakout and sit him. If he turns it around, you've only missed the one week.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career. He has yet to return to that form he exhibited when he was a starter in Minnesota and the Yankees have released the 33-year old. Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
